Hi, I've been working on a particular writing experiment recently, and wanted to see if anyone else here has done anything similar. I love getting really nice, good quality notebooks to write in - mainly because I feel more motivated to write if I've got a beautiful notebook to write in as opposed to a scruffy old notepad (I know it shouldn't matter, but somehow ... it does). I have lots of different notebooks for different purposes, but use one in particular as a collection of anecdotes, diary entries, stories, poems and sketches by a single character. The layout's a bit mad and the character is forever writing about different stages in her life at random pages, mainly because my character has something of an untidy mind (to say the least!) and doesn't understand the concept of using one page at a time, so goes back and forth between different parts of the notebook. I'm doing this particular exercise because the character is mute, and is trapped in a very difficult and uncomfortable position without having any means of expressing herself openly. As a result, I decided that she would then pour everything into her writing, and the drawings that accompany her writing. I'm personally finding it very useful in helping me flesh out my character's understanding of her environment, and even more useful in getting to grips with her feelings about herself (I plan to write in the first person, so that's crucial for me). So, has anyone here done anything similar, i.e. creating a project of some description as if it was created by a character in your story?
